16 Wednesday, January 18,1989 The Salina Journal Thompson doesn't care he's not well understood File photo John Thompson is embroiled in another controversy as he vehemently opposes Proposal 42. By JOHN NELSON AP Sports Writer Nearly seven years ago, John Thompson stood at the front of a room full of reporters in the Louisiana Superdome. His Georgetown basketball team was in its first Final Four, and Thompson was a reluctant part of history. "I resent the hell out of that question if it implies I am the first black coach competent enough to take a team to the Final Four," he said, his electronically amplified voice booming like thunder in a rain barrel. "Other blacks have been denied the right in this country, coaches who have the ability. I don't take any pride in being the first black coach in the Final Four. I find the question extremely offensive.'' The room fell silent. Thompson stood, 6-foot-10 and about 300 pounds, glowering over the room. In a startling moment, many had their introduction to John Thompson. He had made himself understood without a doubt, yet, he is not a well understood man. It seems, though, he doesn't much care what people think. "I don't spend a lot of time being concerned about how people perceive me," he said. "If I did, I'd be running for political office." Frequently in the news because of his basketball team, which has won 154 games in the past five years, including a national championship in 1984, Thompson is making headlines Thompson's boycott continues PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Georgetown basketball coach John Thompson did not make the trip with the Hoyas to Providence on Tuesday for tonight's game with the Friars as he continued his protest over the recently adopted Proposal 42, a school spokesman said. Thompson walked off the bench before the tipoff of last Saturday's Georgetown-Boston College game in protest of the new academic standards, which if not met by incoming freshmen will cost that student-athlete any financial aid as well as eligibility for the first year. Sports information director Bill Shapland said Thompson remained behind in Washington, D.C. when the team left for the Big East Conference game. He said the team would be coached by assistant Craig Esherick. Assistant Mike Reilly coached the team in the 86-60 victory over Boston College. The Hoyas are ranked third with a 12-1 record overall, 2-1 in the conference. again with his loud protest of NCAA Proposal 42. The rule denies athletic scholarships to college freshmen who don't meet NCAA eligibility requirements, including minimum scores on entrance exams that Thompson says are biased against underprivileged students, both black and white. Thompson said he had "a moral obligation" to take a stand, and walked off the court just before the tipoff of Georgetown's home game against Boston College last Saturday. "It's what I believe in. It's what I coach for. It's what I teach for," he said. Many of his peers stand behind him. Others hint he's chasing windmills. It doesn't matter. If Thompson believes it, he does something about it. Years ago, he told a reporter: "I know I'm not perfect, and as I've gotten older, I suppose I've come to accept the fact that life isn't perfect and players are not perfect. I realize all this, but I resent the hell out of it." While Thompson seems to have his share of resentment, he's not all hell's fire and brimstone. He can be intimidating, sure. He can also be charming. He graduated from Providence in 1964 with a bachelor's degree in economics. Later, he got a master's in guidance and counseling from the University of the District of Columbia. He entered college as one of the most touted basketball prospects in the country, and he averaged 32.5 points on the freshman team. For the varsity squad next year, though, he averaged 12.4, and he learned something about overblown expectations. That's one of the reasons he shelters his players now — keeps them in out-of-the-way motels during tournaments, holds closed workouts, and won't allow interviews with freshmen until their second semester. Georgetown was 3-23 in 1972, the year before Thompson arrived. In his first season, the Hoyas went 12-14. By 1976, they had their first 20-win season, and they have won at least 20 games every year since 1978. In his 16 years at Georgetown, all but two of the players who stayed with Thompson for four years have graduated. Occasionally, Thompson has the time and inclination to let others know how he sees himself. If he's sometimes good, he knows it. If he's sometimes bad, he knows that, too. "I've had a halo on my head before, as well as a devil's horns," he said. But, when he glowers or shouts, he says, it's not because he's a mean- spirited man. On the contrary, he says, "I've always been a happy-go-lucky guy." It's just hard to tell sometimes.
